Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 is coming to the Nintendo DS, continuing an annual trend that’s been going on the DS since the first Modern Warfare. The news was confirmed by Dan Amrich, social media manager for Activision, on his website One of Swords. Word came along with the confirmation that n-Space is developing the DS port for release this fall. The news came on the heels of last week’s revelation that Black Ops dev Treyarch is working on the Wii port of MW3.
n-Space has made quite a name for itself in recent years, having worked on all of the Call of Duty ports for DS, as well as Star Wars, Marvel Comics, James Bond and Toy Story ports for the Nintendo handheld. The developer is probably best known for its work on Geist, a smart first-person shooter-like GameCube exclusive in which the main character, a spirit, solved puzzles and fought bad guys by possessing and taking direct control of those he met.
Of course, it’s probably more the previous Duty ports than Geist that will most inform n-Space’s efforts on the MW3 port. If you liked those — they’re not bad, for ports of games that are meant to be played in HD — then you’ll probably be a fan of this next one. Amtich doesn’t mention a release date, though the plan for the Wii version is to get it out on the same day as the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360/PC release. Even that isn’t confirmed, but the hope for a day-and-date release with the “lead” titles for the DS port is presumably the same.
